Product Overview

Frank, Joe, Marvin, and Victoria used to be the CIA's top agents - but the secrets they know just made them the Agency's top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.

Editors Note
Note A group of former government assassins fights back against the CIA after they're targeted for knowing too much in this adaptation of Warren Ellis' acclaimed DC Comics graphic novels. Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) used to be a hired gun for the CIA. Along with Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich), and Victoria (Helen Mirren), Frank's specialty was carrying out contracts that the government didn't want the public to know about. These days, Frank and his old gang are all retired, but the powers that be are still concerned that they know too much, and dispatch a team of top assassins to ensure their silence. Now, Frank and his former team members realize that their only hope for survival is to break into CIA headquarters and expose the truth. But once they're in, the group uncovers evidence of a massive cover-up that promises to rock the very foundation of our government. Karl Urban, Brian Cox, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ernest Borgnine co-star.
Reviews
Variety "[A]n amusing, lightfooted caper about a team of aging CIA veterans rudely forced out of retirement." 09/29/2010
Los Angeles Times "Mirren is most at ease in her role, handling her lines with aplomb and firing automatic weapons like she means it." 10/15/2010
Movieline "RED mixes high and low with a mad chemist's abandon....RED is given a hyper- and yet imaginatively stylized treatment by director Robert Schwentke..." 10/13/2010
A.V. Club "[T]his is a capable, experienced cast with extensive acting chops..." -- Grade: B- 10/14/2010
Hollywood Reporter "[W]hat keeps the movie going is the gameness of the cast, some of whom strike a perfect balance between self-consciousness and credulity." 10/19/2010
Wall Street Journal "Ms. Parker is a graceful comedienne, and it's no news that Mr. Willis is a past master of delicate -- yes, delicate -- self-irony, so their characters generate welcome fizz in the course of a fraught relationship." 10/15/2010
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "Over 20 years since DIE HARD, Bruce Willis is still playing that guy -- sardonic, wisecracking, good at killing -- and it works a treat." 10/22/2010
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Willis and Parker make an appealing couple, the latter's neurotic energy fueling possibly the best onscreen partnership Willis has had since Moonlighting." 10/01/2010
Sight and Sound "[I]t is Helen Mirren, as the demure Victoria Winslow, who is the real casting coup." 12/01/2010
Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "THE EXPENDABLES proved it was profitable to assemble veteran stars....RED offers similar fare, though with a distinctly higher acting caliber." 03/01/2011

Review "Red" isn't a great movie, but it's great fun, and if that sounds like damning with faint praise, you take things too seriously... you won't get far trying to figure it all out - plausibility isn't a prerequisite, given the source material - but you'll have fun watching the characters try to. Willis' career now evidently consists of looking bemused and making occasional wisecracks. He does that well here. Freeman, of course, is stately and solid. Malkovich is even more over-the-top than usual; director Robert Schwentke wouldn't have hurt things by reining him in a bit. Mirren always is a delight.

Review "Red," is one of those rare action comedies that actually delivers action and comedy, and one where the alleged humor doesn't consist merely of wisecracking heroes blowing away cardboard villains. In fact, it meets the requirements of its genre so beautifully that I kept waiting for it to take a risk and go beyond traditional boundaries, which it never does. I felt like a diner who'd expected a burger, thought he detected the smell of a steak being grilled in the kitchen, then got a burger after all - but a fat, juicy one.
